Cobb, Eben C.
It is not feasible for fish owners to leave extra food in their fishs tank before leaving for an extended period. This creates the need for a device that can automatically and reliably feed a fish. The purpose of this project is to design an automated fish feeder for household use. The device was developed to feed a single goldfish for at least 14 days without any additional input from the user. Using an Arduino unit to control two stepper motors, the multi-stage design feeds the fish while avoiding failures that could result in too much food being dispensed. The compact design attaches directly to the tank for easy setup.
